P(X = 1).
(a) Find the value of µ, correct to four decimal places.
(3) (b) For this value of µ evaluate P(2 ≤ X ≤ 4).

µ = 72 kg and standard deviation σ = 7.5kg. The hospital has a lift (elevator) with a maximum
recommended load of 450 kg. Six male nurses enter the lift. Calculate the probability p that
their combined weight exceeds the maximum recommended load.

(a) Use a Venn diagram to show that (A ∩ B) ∪ C =(A ∪ C) ∩ (B ∪ C).
(2) (b) Hence, and by using De Morgan’s laws, show that
(A′ ∩ B) ∪ C′ = (A ∩ C)′ ∩ (B′ ∩ C)′.
